Contributors & Feature Writers

If you have an interest in writing on sunstainable business in Australia, we’d love to hear from you. The Switch Report is always looking for guest contributors. Contact us today to find out more about writing for The Switch Report.

Alistair McCaskill

Alistair is Founding Editor of The Switch Report and Managing Director of Assemblo. His writing has spanned diverse genres from technical manuals on immunodiagnostics and articles on investment and superannuation through to cleantech websites and, of course, The Switch Report.

Alistair created The Switch Report to increase the recognition of the people and businesses that are committed to developing the products and services that will facilitate the switch from an ultimately destructive economy to a sustainable one. It is also a great way of indulging his wide ranging interest in the technologies that generate clean energy, reduce waste and energy demand, prevent pollution, repair the planet and generally reduce the risk of us trashing our little blue speck in space.

If you have an interesting story to tell on that theme, Alistair would love to hear from you.
